In China, Bai Xian Pi (also called Dittany bark), is produced mainly in the Liaoning, Hebei, Jiangsu, Shanxi and Jilin provinces. The dittany bark comes from a bush (dictamni radicis). The bark is peeled from the bush after the roots have been harvested in the spring and fall. Once the ditanny bark has been removed, it is sliced into pieces and sun-dried.

The dried dictamnus rhizome presents coiling block or double barrels in shape, 7 to 12cm long, 1 to 2 in diameter, 2 to 5mm thick, yellowish white to light brown surface, slightly smooth, and with vertical wrinkles and lateral root scars. Internal surface is light yellow, smooth, and with round holes caused by branch roots. It is crisp and easy to break, with ivory and layered cross section. Put under the sunlight or lamp, small white sparkling crystals can be seen.
